Master of Science in Civil Engineering
Master of Science (MS) is a graduate degree for those who desire not only to acquire fundamental knowledge but also to contribute to the advancement of knowledge through independent, original research.
ESE offers two MS programs: in CE and SE. The unifying elements underscore the interrelationships among modern civil, environmental and systems engineering. Both programs provide a springboard for careers as an academician, as a researcher, as a consultant or in management/leadership within a university, institute, industry, or government setting. ESE master’s programs include three components:
- Coursework to gain fundamental and advanced knowledge
- Research conducted in a collaborative environment leading to a thesis and scholarly papers
- Engagement in UVA’s intellectual life
